Fundraising + Formation

Our commitment to service and social justice is grounded in our love for God and one another. Because we believe we are a body called to be a prophetic theological voice, we are motivated to commit ourselves daily to a lifestyle of generosity and inclusivity. The church and programs are very much vibrant and alive here at Riverside.

2019 Commitment Card

When you donate to The Riverside Church, one hundred percent of the funds go directly to person to person ministry, meeting the needs of the marginalized, oppressed, and vulnerable among us. We are committed to the giving of our resources regularly and generously as a matter of spiritual habit, much like prayer, worship, and fasting.

Spiritual disciplines are space makers. They clean us out. They ready us to hear the voice of God and free us to act on it. Because The Riverside Church is a prophetic thought leader, it is all the more important that we are a church body committed to practicing spiritual disciplines. The health of our doing and the health of our being depend on it.

So join us and give in celebration, in humility, and in community. Whether by tithe, pledge, or a one-time gift, your giving is valued and sacred.
